I am a big fan of the Hitman series, and was looking forward to Kane and Lynch: Dead Men since it was announced quite some time ago.
This may not be news to some of you, but I must have missed the announcement or something, because today I find out that the game will NOT support online co op, just offline split screen.
No online co op?!? In this day and age?? This game seemed to be designed for online co op. What a stupid design decision.
I planned on purchasing it with a mate of mine, where we would run through the whole game together, much like we did with Gears of War, and Halo 3.
Without online co op, I will be thinking twice about buying this. I am sure it will be every bit as good as I expect it to be, but there are alot of good games coming out over this holiday season it has to compete with for playtime.
I guess something this simple has cost Eidos at least one potential sale, possibly two, and I bet we are not alone. There is really no excuse for games with multiple protagonists these days to not feature online co op, in my opinion.
